CASAMANCE

Low Casamance, inhabited mainly by the Diola ethnic group , occupies the southern region of Senegal, at the mouth of the river Gambia. Seasonal variations in the level of the Casamance River, flat topography and heavy rains draw a changing landscape of floods in the rice fields. Over the centuries the Diola have developed a unique traditional architecture made of clay, sugar cane and straw which is best described as the “Impluvium” hut. For this UNESCO has recently declared this area as a candidate to the heritage of humanity.

To visit Ziguinchor and its colorful markets or its bird Islands or the Bandial Kingdom, with its sacred forests, the tribal kings, animist traditions and the towns of Seleki, Bandial, Enampor, Eloubaline, is an extraordinary adventure. You could extend your stay to rest a few days on the idyllic beaches of Cap Skirring or Carabane Island.
